"Le matin, le voile d’une brume vient blancher la vallée. Et vers la fin du jour, le rire des enfants qui jouent dans l’eau tiède de la piscine. Mais le soir venu, estompant les contours, la rivère qui s’agite tend à s’apaiser. Plus rien, que les miniscules ronds des ables qui moucheronnent.

Puis la nuit, et le calme s’étend. Cependant, un très léger murmure, c’est la Vienne amoureuse caressant le ravage qui voudrait s’attarder tant le pays lui plait. On dirait qu’elle pleure de devoir le quitter. Impudique, la lune prend son bain de minuit et semble frissonner dans la fraîcheur de l’onde. Mais le brouillard montant de la vallée, couvre la nudité reflétée par les eaux."

Passage by the late Henri Gritton
